Thai Studies Internship Support

Center for Southeast Asian Studies Thai Studies Competition

The Center for Southeast Asian Studies offers funding opportunities to students who work on Thailand. This funding is made possible by the Amnuay-Samonsri Viravan Endowment for Thai Studies housed at the University of Michigan.

CSEAS can provide supplemental support for student internships in Thailand. Funds can be used to support travel to Thailand and to partially offset living costs not covered by other sources.

Eligibility: U-M undergraduate students in good standing.

Amount: Awards will not exceed $2,000.

Deadline: March 1, 2015 at 5:00 pm.

Application Procedure: Please submit the following materials to cseas@umich.edu:

  • Application form
  • Description of internship, including the name of the organization, the length of the internship, and any compensation offered by the organization
